The repair progress in Noi Bai International Airport on the outskirts of Hanoi has reached about 7% with a disbursement of VND260 billion (US$11.2 million).

As the execution of this project is challenging since the repair is undertaken while the airport is still in operation, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung asked the contractors to ensure the quality, progress, and absolute safety during the construction process.

”Aviation security and safety measures should not be ignored”, requested Mr. Dung when inspecting the project on August 25. 

The deputy prime minister asked related ministries and agencies to accelerate the funding for the repair works of the two runways at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat, the two largest airports in the country. 

According to the adjusted planning of Noi Bai International Airport for 2030 with a vision to 2050, it is projected to serve both civil and military purposes and capable of handling large long-haul aircraft such as B777-X, B747- 8, B777-300ER and A380, reaching level 4F according to the provisions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

By 2030, the airport will have three passenger terminals, among which the existing T2 Terminal will be upgraded to reach an annual passenger capacity of 30-40 million. In addition, a new T3 terminal in the south will have an annual capacity of about 30 million passengers.

By 2050, the passenger volume is expected to reach 100 million and cargo volume of 5 million tons per year. Therefore, the airport is planned to add a fourth runway and a fifth terminal with a capacity of 25 million passengers at the location of the existing T1 terminal. The plan also contemplates building a fifth terminal with a capacity of about 25 million passengers per year as an option of contingency.
